If you live in the United States, chances are the government thinks you might be a terrorist
By End the Lie
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has routinely released their “Communities Against Terrorism” advisories in the form of fliers which encourage the public to report suspicious activity, something which the DHS has heavily promoted under their “See Something, Say Something” citizen spying program.
Through releasing these fliers, the FBI has effectively made most activities possible indicators of terrorism. Many of these are so innocuous it is almost laughable to think of them as hints of terrorist activity.
These are intended to make the people of the United States live in a constant state of fear, constantly on the lookout for non-existent terrorists lurking behind every corner.
This also helps create a culture of citizen spying in which neighbors are reporting each other for what would otherwise never be considered noteworthy activities.
Thus, it makes it much easier for the government to track down supposed dissidents since just about everything they do is likely to be considered suspicious when applying all of the absurd guidelines promoted by the FBI.
A recent article on Activist Post runs down some of these fliers and the supposedly suspicious activity which they bring to the public’s attention and when one reads all of these 25 fliers it becomes clear that just about everything could be considered an indicator of possible terrorist activity.
The most consistent thing amongst the many fliers is the demonization of anyone attempting to maintain any degree of privacy.
Essentially, if you demand privacy in nearly any situation and the employees have been brainwashed by government propaganda, it is likely the case that they will be highly suspicious, even when it is completely unwarranted.
However, you should also be regarded as suspicious if you ask too many questions about just about anything, according to the FBI. Apparently you can’t either be curious or demand that your privacy be respected.
Another factor which is consistently regarded as suspicious is if customers have traveled a long distance, meaning that you might be involved in terrorist activity if you ever go on vacation.
They also target people with any beliefs whatsoever, as being politically active or religious has apparently become an indicator of possible terrorist activity.
For instance, a flier given to places specializing in martial arts and paintball said one should be suspicious if an individual makes comments “regarding anti-US, radical theology, [or makes] vague or cryptic warnings” while these terms are never defined.
Nervousness is apparently another potential indicator of terrorist activity, as if people wouldn’t be nervous the first time they attended a martial arts class or played paintball.
Another consistent factor is the supposed suspiciousness of altering one’s appearance, even in ways as simple as shaving a beard or changing one’s hair color.
Most of the fliers also incorporate distance in one way or another, which is especially ridiculous when it comes to internet cafes.
Many people use internet cafes while traveling if they do not want to go through the hassle of lugging a computer with them on vacation, yet somehow the FBI actually thinks this is suspicious.
Paying with cash seems to be a consistent factor amongst all of these fliers as well, as it seems the government believes we should be in a cashless society.
This only makes sense as it is much easier to track an individual’s activities if they are all recorded through a credit or debit card, whereas cash is not as easily traced.
All of this together paints a disturbing picture of a government so deeply paranoid that it seeks to instill this nonsensical paranoia in every single person in the United States.
It is becoming increasingly clear that the people of the United States are the enemy, with domestic military and law enforcement drills on the rise; the passage of legislation which allows American citizens to be held indefinitely without charge or trial; the assassination of American citizens with no justification whatsoever, let alone due process; the increasing use of drones domestically; the criminalization of our children; and so much more.
Unless the people of the United States begin to push back against this wave of tyranny, I expect that it will only continue to expand and get considerably worse so long as we let it happen.
